Breathless – Watt (Celluloid Trances)

Breathless

Renegade,

Hiding behind the sunrise,

A reflection whose hands stretch to the night,

While the day rest on his chest.

Him and I, we have common comforts.

As he gambles his eyes to shadow to travel into sleep,

I don’t let him leave me behind,

Because everything has darkened into a pitch-black sky,

There’s nothing here for me anymore,

And I don’t want to go on my own.

A promise summersaults on the string to which I have him tied,

And an escape is not flying in the open for him to create or find.

We become runaways,

Running from all the signs,

Searching for warnings on people’s mouths,

Arresting holy war,

Scratching visions of the roads on the walls.  

There’s something there for me, places and people,

On these counted cards, wasted on foreign hearts,

So I shelve him and them on the corner of every chance,

Now, I’ll never be alone.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
